WHISKEY AND POLITICS.
Notwithstanding old Sol's scorching
rays from above, and a blood-shedding
election, we are happy to stale that
the qaiet demeanor of onr town was
not in the least disturbed, although
there wore deep feelings of interest
manifested in the selection of both
State and county officers. It is indeed
humiliating to our pride to read of

Committee met on Thursday and tabulated
the result of the primary. The
returns made to The News and HeraLD
do not materially vary wiib the
official I able puhlisbed in this issne,
except in the vote for Governor. In
the official table, the vote at Greenbriar
differs with tbe returns of The
News and Herald. The official vote
as declared by tbe committee gives
Hoyt 25 at G-^'nbriar and McSweeney
37, whereas The News and Herald
gave the latter 57 We have often
noticed that some people make tbe figures
5 and 3 very much alike, and it i9
probable tbst in making the table the
onmmitree mistook 57 for 37, and in
this wav the error occurred. We feel
I sure our figures are correct, for tbe
uamber of ballots cast at Greenbriar
are in favor of its correctness. If
The News and Herald is correct McSweeney
has carried the countj' by 16
majority; by the official table Hoyt
has carried the ccnnty by a msjoritv
of 4 votes. It i.? really immaterial
which is correct, foi it dots not bfFect
tbe result in the State.
